The way of life among Thailand's northern hill tribes has changed little over the centuries. Traditionally, artisans melt silver bars and old necklaces to create new adornments for New Year celebrations, an example of which is this cuff of braided, intertwined strands of sterling silver. The artisan melts, cools, hammers, shapes, chisels, and engraves the sterling silver to achieve a braided and woven effect.


6 3/32" from end to end; 1"W. Handmade in Thailand.

        Jade has an ancient history in Mesoamerica, where it was used by cultures from the Olmec to the Maya to the Aztec. It symbolized life and death and was used to make figurines, jewelry, and even inlays for teeth. The Maya believed that a jade bead would provide passage through the underworld. Because conquering Spaniards were more interested in gold, the sources of ancient Mesoamerican jade were lost for hundreds of years. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch, one of the most powerful hurricanes in modern history, exposed boulder-size jade deposits near Xalapa, Mexico. Archaeologists now believe this location was a major source of jade for ancient civilizations. The simple designs of these hand-carved accents let the stone’s mottled colors take center stage. Handcrafted in family workshops in Antigua, Guatemala. Stone colors may vary.

        Silversmithing has a long and respected history on the Indonesian island of Bali, where the word pandai means both "smith" and "clever."

A small group of Balinese artisans collaborate on the tiny granulated designs on these medallion earrings. Each is handcrafted from sterling silver and paired with a smooth onxy cabochon.
